What the fuck is an Imagine Dragon anyway? Aren’t all dragons imaginary? What a redundant name for a band.

Sorry. I couldn’t help but vent there, as I honestly can’t fathom how these ‘musicians’ became popular. Now that they’re contributing their muzak-ready drivel to Transformers: Age of Extinction, I guess we can use them as a baseline for whether or not the person sitting next to you has taste that jives with the lowest common denominator. It’s kind of like that moment when emo music went totally mainstream via Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 and that awful Fantastic Four movie. From that day forward, if you listened to anything remotely resembling Dashboard Confessional or Taking Back Sunday, your taste was automatically “corporately influenced”.

But you’re not here for my diatribes on a musical style’s evolution from “underground curiosity” to “mall crowd atrocity”. You want to see big dinosaur robots scream at each other and start smashing shit. And why wouldn’t you? Robots are cool. Dinosaurs are cool. Smashing shit is cool (if you don’t get caught, that is). So take a gander at this new International Trailer for Michael Bay’s fourth Transformers film (and try to ignore those frat bros pounding out their “Battle Cry” in the background):

Did you catch that glimpse of John Goodman’s new Autobot character, Hound? Pretty cool, right? Now here’s three more TV spots, all of which give you a little something extra to look forward to:

I have to admit, while the human element of this fourth franchise installment feels like a Girl Talk-style mash-up of every flesh-suit story that’s fronted the series before, hearing that big dinobot roar was music to my hears. It’s probably going against my better judgement, but I’m actually kind of stoked to see Age of Extinction. Though I wish Mark Wahlberg were somehow playing Terry Hoitz in this, as a Transformers/The Other Guys crossover would probably melt my face off.

Transformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27, 2014.
